On Sunday night, Kobe Bryant passed Michael Jordan for third all-time on the NBA scoring list. On Friday night in a 112-110 overtime victory over the Spurs, Kobe scored 22 points, leaving him eight short of tying MJ and nine short of leaping him in the record books. He finished Sunday’s game with 26 points and a 100-94 win over the young Minnesota Timberwolves, passing Jordan with an exclamation point. In a season surrounded by uncertainty for the Lakers and Kobe’s future,
To borrow a line from the Christmas carol “Let It Snow”, the weather outside is indeed frightful. Winter is here, and to escape the elements, you need to find things to do that will preferably keep you out of the cold. I’ve found a way to do just that.

His misfortune actually benefits daily fantasy players, because salaries have yet to adjust and at least three Raptors will share those 33 minutes per game.
Big Wednesday means 13 NBA games and a top prize of $20,000 in the huge $200K Crossover — $27 to enter, maximum 8,400 teams, top 1,850 get paid.
Over the weekend, LeBron James called his slumping, underachieving Cleveland Cavaliers “a fragile team.” James is partially right. As a group, the Cavaliers aren’t dealing very well with the lofty expectations put upon them by pundits like me. Right now, they look like a typical front-running team that lacks mental toughness and gives in at the first sign of trouble.
